Cyber Command virus is a dangerous ransomware, which attacks people living in USA. Just like any other ransonware, it changes its name according to computer's location. For example, if your computer is in Washington, virus shows up as a Cyber Command of Washington, if your machine is in New York, this virus will present itself as a Cyber Command of New York, if its in California – it shows up as Cyber Command of California and so on. The clearest sign telling that your computer is infected with this threat is a huge warning message, which claims that you were illegally using copyrighted content, spreading malware or distributing pornographic material. After that, it asks to pay a fine of $300. Of course, you should never pay this fine via Moneygram or Moneypak prepayment system. You must ignore Cyber Command virus because there is no governmental authority that would collect fines in such way.
HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Cyber Command virus?
Just like all viruses, Cyber Command virus infiltrates computers without any sign. This is possible because this ransomware is distributed by trojan horse. Some experts call it Trojan RansomLock, others present it as the Trojan Urausy. However, no matter what the name of this trojan is, the most important thing is what it is able to do. Typically, this virus infiltrates computer through its backdoors. You can prevent that by installing reputable anti-spyware on your machine. However, if it gets inside its target PC system, it downloads malicious files that belong to Cyber Command virus and also blocks the affected system. For that, it needs to add its own registry entries. As a result, Cyber Command virus starts its misleading campaign, which relies on this fake notification:
